Hope Community Services is a values based organisation, committed to supporting people whose lives are affected directly or indirectly by alcohol and other drug use and social exclusion. Hope Community Services has been a presence in the community of Western Australia since 1902. Services operate from both the Perth metropolitan area and in regional Western Australia.
